Notable Attacks/Techniques:Haki: There are normally two types of Haki standard people can tap into: the Kenbunshoku Haki which allows individuals to sense the presence of others, and Busōshoku Haki which allows individuals to create an invisible armor around them. There is however, a third type of Haki, Haōshoku Haki, that only a few individuals can use. Z is not one of these people.
- Busōshoku Haki (Color of Armaments): A form of Haki that allows the user to create an "invisible armor" around themselves. With that, they can protect himself from attacks, and if trained well, can use it to deliver stronger attacks. Besides the increase of strength, it is the only form of attack that doesn't involve Kairouseki that can hit any Devil Fruit user, being able to hit the user's original body even if it's a Logia user. It can also be used in weapons.
Rokushiki: A special, superhuman martial arts style used primarily by members of Cipher Pol #9. It consists of six special techniques, Kami-e, Geppou, Rankyaku, Shigan, Soru, Tekkai. So far Zephyr has only displayed the use of Soru and Tekkai.
- Tekkai: Zephyr hardens his muscles to the level of iron, in order to nullify damage taken from attacks. However, it can be broken by strong enough forces.
- Soru: By kicking the ground at least 10 times in the blink of an eye, Zephyr propels himself across short distances at enhanced speeds.
Key: Prime | Film Z
Note: Zephyr is a Canon Character but the One Piece Film: Z is Noncanon and as such feats like Luffy defeating him can happen.
